      Hello,

      is it profitable to cbet or donk monotome flops? When you're donking you almost always represent value such as 2p trying to protect from further flushdraws or a flush protecting from higher 1-card flushdraws. If villain has a 1-card flushdraw on the flop he might call, but that's less than half of the time.
      On monotome boards, can we also bluff raise or bluff x/r?

      I hope my math is right -

      With air: Considering that in the microstakes people find it very hard to fold pairs, and no one will fold a flushdraw, it's not very hard to say that you're looking at a call for about 50% of your donks on the flop, which will make it for a 50% pot cbet a EV 0 move. If you've raised preflop we can remove some flush draw combinations, which then might be worth your Cbet if you think you can make overcards and general crappy hands fold. Depends on the villain at this point.

      Also, if you believe that a smaller than 50% cbet will get more credit on the table, it is actually pretty profitable cbet...

      You also have to consider that people with a low card from the same suite might not call due to reverse implied odds.
